John 3:16 Activities

 Here is our 9th day of our 14 Days of Valentine Activities


Today in our calendar, we find ourselves working with the ever-popular Bible verse of John 3:16.


This is such a great verse telling us how much God loves us. He loves us so much that He sent His only Son, Jesus, to die for us! That is quite a thought! Jesus died for you. Jesus died for your children. Jesus died for me.



We have put together quite a bit of fun for you today.


1) Hand Motions

First things first! It is very important for children to learn scripture. Having the God's Word embedded in their hearts and minds will help them for the rest of their lives.


Grandma has put together hand motions so that you and your children can learn this ever-important verse. 


For God - point to the ceiling

So loved - use your arms to "draw" a large heart with your arms


the world - put arms into a circle to represent the shape of the world


that He gave - put hands out as if giving something


His only Son - act like rocking a baby


that whoever believes - hands over your heart


in Him - point to the ceiling


shall not perish - wave hands in front of you as in a "no way" motion


but have eternal life - arms straight out to your sides


John 3:16
